Though pregnancy is a time to take in nutrients that help your baby grow, it’s also a time when cravings are at an all-time high! Use these healthy pregnancy desserts to literally have your cake and eat it too.
When it comes to pregnancy, cravings can be all over the place.
But there’s one thing that’s never disputed: at some point in time, you are going to want allll the sweet things.
As a mom of three, I found that I was chocolate-obsessed with my first babe, ice cream-obsessed with my second, and would eat everything under the sun (after the trimester of course haha) with my third.
Thankfully, as a Certified Nutrition Coach, I was able to find a balance in each pregnancy that let me enjoy my cravings, not feel restricted, and still give my babe the healthy nutrients it needed.
So, if you are currently expecting first off: congrats!!! Though I didn’t appreciate it with my first, it is truly a special time.
And second, scroll through the list of healthy pregnancy deserts below and pick out some new recipes to try.
Not only will you feel AMAZING indulging a craving but that voice inside your head telling you that you need nutrients will shut off too 😉
